The Presidents Corner – October 2021

There goes Route 66 on the Air! As of this writing, Route 66 on the Air for 2021 is in the log and we’ve made 1222 hams very happy because they’ve got W6L in their log. We’ve already mailed back over 50 W6L QSL cards and after my last trip to the PO Box, there’s another 50 or so to mail. We made contacts using FT8, CW and SSB. This year the hot bands were 80, 40 and 20 meters. If you participated this year, many thanks for getting Tulsa back on the map. If you have a log that […]

The President’s Corner – July 2021

Field Day 2021…One for the books!!! Last years’ Field Day was…well…you know…kinda discouraging. This years’ Field Day was a record breaker. Lots of activity and many showing up to see what a TARC Field Day looks like. If you weren’t there…you missed a good one. We thought it might be a washout with the rain and thunderstorms, but it quit about 10 AM and only delayed setup an hour or so. After a few hours of partly cloudy skies the clouds took over and it was a very pleas-ant afternoon, except for one brief shower. The TARC Comm trailer was […]

President’s Corner

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature… After a year of no club meetings, we were on track to have our first in person club meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. Well, like I said, it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature. We had a real cold snap and some rain earlier in the day so we had to postpone the in person meeting until our May monthly meeting. Mark your calendar for our in person meeting on May 18th at 7:00 PM. As before, we’ll have the TARC Comm trailer available at 6:00 PM for tours. The TARC […]

President’s Corner

Can you believe it?   After a year of no club meetings, we’re on track to have our first in per-son club meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. A short survey done during the March 16th weekly net showed that the majority of us are ready for an in person meeting. The location is still to be determined. Keep checking the Tulsa Amateur Radio Club Facebook for the details. The Tulsa Amateur Radio Club Weekly Net is going strong and thanks to some really good presentations by Ron KB5VDB, Mark KG5ZZV and Bart N5TWB a lot of hams are checking in […]


It’s unfortunate that I have to report that the new TARC trailer was broken into recently and a number of items were stolen. Included were the two ICOM 7300’s. The serial numbers are 020333054 and 02033463. Also stolen were 3 heavy duty 50′ power cords, coax and wire used for antennas, some tools and other small items. If you are a Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist watcher or you attend any flea markets or ham tailgates, please keep an eye out for these radios. Thanks. Mark WA5MA
